Last weekend, the San Sebastian Parish welcomed the entire community for their 35th Annual Fall Festival.

The Fall Festival is more than a roadside carnival; this year drawing thousands of attendees eager to taste the delicious, ethnic cuisine and enjoy the wide variety of entertainment.

There was fun for all ages at the festival; from a giant inflatable slide, bounce houses, rock climbing, carnival games and Kiddie World for the youngest, to a bake shop, face painting, huge rummage sale, furniture mart, silent auction, country store and clothing boutique for the adults.

Fr. John Gillespie was especially proud of the entertainment lineup for the two-day celebration that included music, singing and dancers. The featured performance Saturday was Randy “Elvis” Walker, an Elvis impersonator, and Sunday, the Luis Mario Peral Jazz Band.
